WatchGuard Technologies unveiled its new security technology designed specifically for Apple iOS-enabled devices.
By doing so, WatchGuard provides mobile users unparalleled protection for their iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch data, while giving network administrators a superior way to manage, monitor and secure mobile devices, information and applications.
By creating a mobile virtual private network (VPN) connection via IPSEC, WatchGuard customers with iOS devices will be able to create fast and easy VPN connections from anywhere to their WatchGuard XTM firewall appliance. By doing so, an encrypted tunnel is created, which secures data traffic from an iOS device to the corporate network and other behind-the-firewall resources.
Furthermore, this allows firewall policies and protections to be applied to authorized mobile users, which means WatchGuard customers with iOS devices will gain the benefits of gateway anti-virus, intrusion prevention and other security services to keep out hackers, spyware, malware and more.
